Genital Condyloma Treatments

There is currently no cure for human papillomavirus infection, but there are treatments to get rid of genital warts. They include:

  • Medicated creams and solutions: These can burn or break down the wart tissue.
  • Cryotherapy: This involves freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen, causing it to eventually slough off.
  • Surgery: Your physician can remove the warts while you are under anesthesia.
  • Electrocautery: This is the use of an electrical current to burn off the wart tissue.
  • Laser treatment: A beam of light can remove widespread or stubborn warts.
